An episode of "The Betty White Show". Betty is great, the episode is very poor. But another episode on IA is quite good. May have been an off-episode. Still a couple worthwhile moments though.

A collection of US commercials for products you can no longer buy. Forgive me if there's any mistakes. Sometimes the brand is still around but the exact product is gone (such as with "Futurama" lipstick by Revlon), sometimes both the product and brand are gone (such as with "Tip Toni"). Some only exist in-name-only, while at least one product is no longer available in the US but is still sold in another country. The commercials are mainly from the 1950s, along with some from...

An episode of the hugely popular British TV series "The Adventures of Robin Hood" called "A Year and a Day", from 1956. In this episode, Robin tries to help a poor man get his freedom (a common plotline).

A bizarre 1952 TV pilot for "The Spike Jones Show", a comedy/variety show. The pilot was not picked up, but Spike Jones did eventually host a series on TV: In 1954 he hosted a mid-season replacement, in 1957 he hosted a summer replacement, and in 1961 he hosted yet another series.

A fourth compilation video that I (Argall) edited together, containing commercials for products and brands which are no longer available. The commercials are from the 1950s and 1960s. Sometimes the brand is still around but the exact product is gone, while in other cases both the product and brand are gone. The commercials range from "very good" to "very bad". Some of these come from the Adviews section, most do not.

An episode of the popular 1950s comedy-variety series "The Buick-Berle Show", starring Milton Berle and featuring Jackie Cooper, Denise Darcel, Dagmar, and Vic Damone. Broadcast live, and preserved as a kinescope recording. Lots of dated fun with the original 1953 commercials intact! (if there are any problems with the playback of this video, please let me know).

An unsold pilot for a proposed series titled "The Jane Powell Show". This would have been a sitcom about a singer who marries a a math professor (played by Russell Johnson) and has to adapt to small-town life.

An average episode of the early 1950s sitcom "The Trouble with Father". I'm not sure if I got the episode title or date right, but it does feature some of the original commercials (more fun than you'd think) and a plot line that shows the more things change, the more they stay the same. In this episode, Stu ends up co-owning a Dress-shop. I hope the picture quality isn't too awful.

An episode of "All Star Revue" with Danny Thomas, Eleanor Powell, and June Havoc. Highlights include politically incorrect sketch about what would happen if the US had a female president....also, I might be wrong, but I think part of Danny Thomas' stand-up routine was also used in the 1952 remake of "The Jazz Singer". Episode is somewhat incomplete.

An unsold TV pilot from 1963 called "The Plot Thickens". Same concept as the early 1950s series "Crawford Mystery Theatre" (of which only a single kinescope survives...anyone able to upload it?). In this pilot, a panel is shown a short film about a crime, and then has to guess who the guilty person is. Features Groucho Marx as one of the panel members. Could someone please check that this is public domain?

A 1960 television film starring Phil Silvers and guest starring Jack Benny. It is a spoof of TV westerns. Notice the interestingly used laugh-track. I am pretty sure this is public domain, it does not appear on the US copyright office catelogue website search.
